Oil companies aiding Lybian ‘rebel’ force.

Khalifa Hifter, one of two rebel military commanders vying for the top command position over Free Libyan Forces in Libya, in his office at the Gulf Oil Co. in Benghazi on Tuesday.

Instead, they went directly to a civilian, Fawzi Bukatef, a petroleum engineer who has been training other civilians and sending them to the front lines.
